EA customer support in a nutshell

I actually went through a plethora of phone calls, emails, and more to get a problem I was having with Origin resolved. While the problem itself took a while to resolve, I was pleased with the professionalism and friendliness with which EA's customer support helped me. They also gave me some free junk in BF3 in the process and I was even bitching to them that whole time...probably should have. Might have gotten more free ****.

How bad do you have to be, as a game company to be voted worst in a time where banks fail, stores treat their personel horribly, oil spills and human rights are neglected for profit.    
   
Only EA can do such a thing...

People who care about this vote = Gamers
People who found this vote = Gamers
People who can rally the most haters the best = Gamers

The poll means absolutely nothing. It's just a lot of butt hurt gamers who will vote on EA even though plenty of other companies are far worse.

The oil company BP or something that ruined a lot of things with the oil.
The banks stealing billions from people and similar stuff.
PETA that burn down huge factories.

Plenty of choices. Also the vote is for every company in USA. Game companies are not among them except for Capcom.

Paid DLC on disk.
Less and less features in their games on sequels.
Almost always charging for characters.
Killing off MegaMan franchise and not doing anything good with it. The few times it tries to do fan service they throw in a MegaMan costume into Dead Rising which look absolutely horrible and the same goes for Lost Planet.

Activision is also a good choice for a worse company. Always charging for it's DLC. Charging for it's Elite thing for their game and it was only for an year too. It's free now but it was a thing they charged for in the start.
EA gave a thing like that away for free.

Activision was also the company that made DLC cost $15 as base for like just 3 maps and nothing else. It's also only the boss that sees this money. Not the developers.

EA have done bad stuff but they are far from worst.

I think the only thing that would make them 'wake up' is if everyone stops buying their games. nothing speaks louder in this world than the almighty dollar.. or euro, or yen, or... **** it you get the idea.

Problem is they are banking on the casuals and sports fans only because they hold the rights to all the publishing of games with sports organizations.

They claim that one can create LGBT characters, and for most of that acronym, they're right. But what EA game allows one to create transgender characters? Sure, you can dress a sim up in feminine or masculine clothes, and use cheats to switch the sex of a sim, but I don't think that really counts. Is getting a sex change an option in the latest edition of The Sims 3?

I love how in the article they say oh, we can do better and we will do better but not once he said how they will do it to make their company much better by what actions they will do to fix the problems they are having. Also yeah, being proud of a company that is doing a ****** job? like really?! hell I won't be proud of that I'll get angry and mad and take charger and fix my company if my company was ranked worrest company again.

Something that really pissed me off in that article is when they say "Some claim there’s no room for Origin as a competitor to Steam. 45 million registered users are proving that wrong." origin is no competitor but they make it so we can't get the games any other ******* way if they were to release games on steam as well as origin then origin would fail horrifically but no ea had to be different they had to be ******* cunts and create something that sucks they couldn't be like hundreds of other game companies, they had to be money grabbing cunts.. **** you ea, **** YOU.

While EA might be pretty bad, a lot of the voting for EA to be the worst company in America was due to ******** telling people to vote for them because they allow people to create LGBT characters in some of their games.

You do know that /v/ stood for most of the votes? Not some homophobic site as EA wants you to believe. There is a strong will to remove EA from the videogame market and it has nothing/very little to do with them adding LGBT-people in their games.

Power is power. Adolf Hitler is far from the worst person ever, yet he's the most hated. He killed fewer than Stalin and Mao, and had much better ethics than people like Pol-Pot. He was just far more powerful than a lot of the African war lords are today. If Idi Amin had been in charge of Germany instead, he'd be a lot more worse.

A small mistake for a bank causes more damage than EA and all other game developers will ever cause throughout history of time. They just have ****** ethics, and they're paying for it now.
